We hit one laundry place in Florence and that was nice because they had hot showers there as well. We also charged up the phones. Little things like outlets are obviously taken for granted in the real world...it's nice to find them on the road. This was our second time at a laundry mat...had to dry our stuff from the wash the day before. It is so humid and cold at night that our stuff never dries by the time we take off again. So we usually hang it 0n the back of our bike somewhere and let the wind from riding dry it! So this was obviously a treat!
